El Nuevo Amanecer Server Mugged in Broad Daylight
A restaurant worker at a Lower East Side restaurant was mugged in broad daylight Monday afternoon, neighbors tell us.
Apparently, the knife wielding perpetrator attempted to rob a staffer at El Nuevo Amanecer at the corner of Essex and Stanton streets. It’s unclear whether the victim sustained injuries, but was apparently nearly slashed on the arm, were it not for the immediate response of police.
Lower East Sider Richard Rivera was right there, working on a new project at Clayton Patterson’s Outlaw Art Museum. He witnessed the altercation, and caught the arrest in real time.
